LUXEMBOURG, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Our colleague, Wolfgang Baertz, sadly passed away on 19 September. Wolfgang was a director since 2002 and played a huge role in the development of Ardagh over the last 20 years. His wise counsel, contribution and support will be greatly missed by his colleagues.

Ardagh announces the following appointments to the Board:

The Rt Hon Philip Hammond has been appointed to the Board as a non-executive director and as a member of the Audit Committee.

Philip has had a distinguished career in British politics.
